The VectorLinux team announced yesterday, April 1st, the immediate availability of their VectorLinux 6.0 Light Linux distribution. Being designed to work with low-end machines, VL6.0 Light will need only a 200 MhZ processor, 64 MB of RAM and 2 GB of hard disk space. "Light is aimed at users with some Linux experience. It is biased towards technical simplicity and high performance. Based on VL6.0 Standard, the most resource hungry applications have been removed or replaced with lighter alternatives. Running services are kept to a minimum." was stated in the official release announcement.

VectorLinux 6.0 Light comes with two window managers: IceWM, which is also the default one, and JWM (Joe's Window Manager). A complete Web browsing experience is provided through Opera and Mozilla Firefox, both capable of displaying Flash content and other video formats through Flashplayer 10 and MPlayer plugins. Wired and wireless network connections are set up and managed using Wicd.

VectorLinux 6.0 Light features:

· Vburn CD burning application;
· Pidgin, a multi-protocol Instant Messaging client;
· Siag Office, a lightweight office suite;
· Gqview image viewer;
· Xpdf pdf reader;
· mtPaint painting tool;
· Xarchiver, supporting many popular archive types;
· RipperX CD ripping application;
· Xchat IRC client;
· Leafpad, a simple text editor;
· gFTP multithreaded FTP client;
· Gslapt package manager;
· A "dev" package containing many programming tools.

Being specifically created to run on old machines, the 617 MB ISO hosting the operating system also contains boot floppy images, in case your computer is not able to boot from an optical drive.
